Ah nice empty. Is that urine? If so I would think it would be a little warm... hhehe just kidding. That colour reminds me of that Banana flavored cough medicine. (yeah, you should get some black coolant hehehe)

Paul, I would double-check that tye-wrap on the upper tubing - it does not seem to be on the barb, but on the tubing itself.

Good eye John. From the pic it looks like you are correct.

Oh yeah, I put that there on purpose. There is still another 2 zip ties on the barb itself. That one that is off the barb is there, because the tube is pushing Up on the barb, and without the extra tie, it would no get a good seal on the barb. That pic is deceiving. I should loosen it off though, as it is a little tigher than I need. Thanks for noticing though!

You can see what I mean if you look closely to this one..

Too much of a bend for such a short tube, right?

Yeah, exactly. This seems to keep it nice and intact. Kinda like a mini Smartcoil.
